In recent years, Creative Project Managers have dealt more with digital work. Companies are increasingly favoring online communications and therefore creative work has come to encompass websites, online videos, adverts, influencer collaborations, and social media campaigns. Knowledge of the online landscape is now essential to the modern Creative Project Manager.
Creative Project Managers and Producers can expect to progress to Senior Creative Account Management roles within time and experience, eventually with the potential to reach Account Director positions.
Employers will expect knowledge of, and experience of working in, Project Management. Since the role can cover several sectors, experience in the sector you are applying for is also useful. An eye for good creative work will also be necessary, as will knowledge of how creative teams work together.
Make sure you display all relevant skills on your CV and detail some of the projects you have worked on previously. Emphasize any interactions you have had with creative teams in order to establish your Project Manager credentials.
Specific qualifications in Project Management and Production are not necessarily required, but a degree in Marketing or a similar field can help you build the knowledge base you need.
